New look to my blog

I am so thrilled I finally learned how to change my background for my blog...I know that sounds silly, but I have really been struggling trying to figure it out. I am loving getting these free backgrounds from HERE! Check them out, they have tons of different options.
So I have been working on lots of deadlines for much is going on and I just don't have enough time in the day to get it all done. I am so glad to have the season almost over, nver before have I felt this way, but this year has just been one of those years! Life itself has been crazy! I keep thinking I need some down time, but actually I just need an assistant to do some of my work for me!!! Like that would ever happen!
I do like this time of year for me because I spend more time at home, maybe not time with my family because I am preoccupied, but home based is a good feeling!
I will be back later with photos of my latest creations...been working on cheer stuff and got tons more to do!

Love is in the air!

I am trying this year to be so much better about updating my is working...although I am not posting daily but maybe once a week. It's a start!

Today is my sisters birthday! Thought I would give a shout out to her in case she ever comes and reads my blog!!!
Happy Birthday Maria-hope it is a wonderful day!!!

Here are the latest cards I made, since Valentines is around the corner and I have a little card group I am a part of...I thought what the heck! I am never so on top of the holidays, they usually come and go so quickly and I always think...wish I had time to make something. Well this time I did, tell me what you think...

Happy New Year

As will everything in my life it is always a day or two...or even a week late!!! So I try! Happy New Year! This year has started off in a frenzy! I still have Christmas decorations up at my many of you still have yours up? I am hoping this weekend to find the time to take everything done and get back to some normalcy around here. HA! HA! Who am I kidding? the Goswick home! Okay, okay...just want to get on with the next adventure waiting around the corner! Don't know what that is going to be, but I know that January marks a busy time for cheerleading, we have banquets to plan, fundraisers to do, budgets to make, pictures to edit, gifts to be bought, all of the crazy end of year stuff! So from January to mid March I have my hands full of cheerleading related things!!! Makes me a little crazy just thinking about it!!! Just think in a little over a year Miranda will graduate and I may never have to think about cheerleading I a little sad, NOT!!! I will miss it yes, but other doors will open and I will do other things...what I don't know. As for now I hope to learn the word no! That is a good start!
I am not one for making New's Years Resolutions but I do like to think of a word to focus on...this year it is going to be HOPE!
HOPE-for a better life
HOPE- for a better economy
HOPE-for a closer family
HOPE-for more time to spend together
HOPE-my kids will clean their rooms
HOPE-my cholesterol will go down with out taking medication!
HOPE-a heathlier year for my family than last year!
HOPE-Miranda can choose a college she is excited about attending
HOPE-that we can afford that college!
I just have so much to hope for this year...what are your hopes for the year?
